    Couldn't agree more. I am on my 3rd and they have all been good and an improvement over stock saddle. I did ride my 2011 R1200RT 3000 miles with the stock seat on a trip to the west coast (and...

    Tank Bag for K1200S

    Can anyone recommend a tank bag for a 2006 K1200S? I need a larger one like the BMW bag on my 1200RT. Has anyone taken any long trips on a KS?

    I looked on a site having parts fiche and saw that the latest part for K1200S ball joints is the same as those used in the heavier K1600GT. I wonder if BMW beefed up the parts. Maybe newer parts...

    Have you checked out the electronics package on a Ducati 1199 Panigale R? Significant intervention on a street bike, although I believe a lot of it is for homologation reasons.

    A couple of thoughts: you can buy some relatively new OEM shocks off Ebay or the Flea Market. You can buy some aftermarket shocks, keep your OEM shocks and when you sell or trade the bike, reinstall...

    Does the Odyssey battery fit inside the bike with no alterations? I bought a non-BMW battery once and the fit was lousy. The terminals and connections had to be altered to make it usable.
